The Vivobarefoot Ultra 3 Bloom (women’s version pictured here) is a vegan outdoor shoe—yep, you read that right, it’s made from an algae-based, sustainable alternative to petrochemical foams. Lightweight and breathable, it’s ready for adventures on land or in the water and can be taken almost anywhere. It’s definitely a different type of shoe, so those who like their footwear to be simple yet stylish will love the Ultra 3 Bloom. It takes a little bit of getting used to on the first few outings, but is an unbeatable shoe for warmer climes and vacations. The Vivobarefoot Ultra 3 Bloom is available in electric blue or black and white.
